I started dieting on May 15, 2020. Welcome to day 189.

Yesterday was movie night for my family. We watched Disney’s remake of Mulan. It was truly inspiring. So, I have not posted in this category for a few days. As many of you know, I am an aspiring recording artist. For the past few days, I have been working on a major upcoming event to support many different efforts I am making to launch a full-scale music production in July of 2021. Read the press release about “Operation Homefront Global Concert.”

— MY FOOD MEMO FOR SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2020

Breakfast

In stead of waiting until 10:00 pm to post in this category, I will be posting throughout the day when I can, to avoid missing a day in this column. So, at this hour I have had breakfast, a snack, and a late lunch. I am trying to stay at or below 2,000 calories which is about half of what I used to eat. Check back during lunch and dinner hours (Central Time, USA) for updates to this post.

Charity: Water Campaign

On Saturday, September 6, 2020, I became a Spring Member, pledging a donation to charity: water every month. I also started a fundraising campaign for charity: water called, “Songs For Water.” This fundraiser is to help charity: water build the much needed water projects around the world. Read my post about this. With just a little work, we’ve already raised enough money to give water to one beautiful life for an entire year! Your support really goes a long way. We have 40 days left and only $100 remaining to reach our goal before this campaign ends. Let’s smash this goal!

Best of Mental Health and Wellness,

Goodnight.
